Let me look up that scanner to see if it can do key programming and pin reads.. Hang on..

it will go into programming mode, but the security light will not flash the required 5 times after introducing the proximity key
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 3 months ago

Well the steps to programming is done by first putting the hazards on, and performing steering lock release. Once that is done, then the ignition is turned on. Then you would decode the 5 digit pin to a 4 digit pin and program. That is when the light would flash 5 times.

Did you decode the 5 digit Bcm pin? also, what Model Scanner is this? Cause I do see models that do Ecm programming, but I don't see them able to key registration.

it is a maxisys ms906. i did decode the pin, it grants me access and goes into programming, but the key would not register.i'm using the old key (correct fcc) and new key (purchased at dealer by vin)once the start button is pressed it will blink a light at the top of the button, then once the prox key is introduced the dash does light up but the security light will stay solid.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 3 months ago

Are you doing Steering lock release as a first step?

Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 3 months ago

You also need to erase all key ID's as well. Did you do that also?

the steering lock is being performed, (if the steering is not released it will not go into programming)
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
it erased all previous keys, thats the problem the car wont start now
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 3 months ago

Right.. so you do steering lock release with Hazards on.. RIght? Then you push the start button ( not stepping on the Brake ) to turn the ignition on. Then you enter the 4 digit pin, and perform the programming steps for the first remote. Then you turn the ignition off, and back on, to do the second remote. Then you turn the ignition back on and re-do the first remote.

does the BCM or PCM go into lock mode?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
or may me the anti theft module
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 3 months ago

No.. So you can get one of the remotes to program correct? Just not both?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
i can't program neither of them now,
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 3 months ago

Sorry for the delay. The site has been experiencing technical issues and went down in the middle of our question.

Since you can get 1 of the remotes to program, if you restart the programming process, and you switch to the other remote, does that program?
